Thread: A sewing machine for a total beginner?
19/09/2019 18:57:58

I have an old new home machine, was my mum's, must be over 15years.have no problems, taken over by janome. Newer models don't seem much different, but it was a quite expensive one. (not worth replacing) hope I haven't jinxed it. 😀Maria.

Great, someone will love it.

Got my machine out the other day, mojo is there somewhere.

Health improving, next appointment 6 months, unless I call them G 🙏

I've just realised I can spend my avios/British Airways points on a hotel in Birmingham, guess where & what my incentive to be in remission is... And I'll have some over for another trip or to donate to daughter who is desperate to get to gold level by the end of the year! Not that she's really wanted to spend half her life flying between venues.

😊 Maria.

Oh what an unexpected package arrived in the post today, hug hearts, Thankyou all so much. I will have to try and get some mojo going, and get dh to reinstate my machine on the kitchen table. Thankyou for your love,

Maria. xx

Lovely quilts ladies, just managed a few hexies in the hospital, am at home now, thank goodness, like skin nd bone with threat of returning if home cooking doesn't increase my weight. I have no real appetite though eek!

Love Maria

Lovely work ladies. I'm a bit apethetic at the moment, with my crohn's giving me a lot of pain, and poor sleep. Ihave an ecg and ct scan this week for the heart, so that is making progress, but I'm not getting the excercise, too painful to move at times. Still I'm thinking of lots of ideas, and berating myself for the excessive amounts of fabrics, and where to donate them, school, craft clubs etc.

I have recently crocheted a hat, and a thick rectangle in extra chunky wool, not sure what it will become, and started a jumper r with odd pin needles but I seem to be starting a lot and not finishing at the moment, no concentration.

Ho hum onwards and upwards

I suspect the show may be repeated on Saturday or Sunday afternoon, so if you can wait, and you don't have I player, that might be an option.

I got home from hospital to find some lovely hug hearts, thank you so much for your thoughts, I need to build up my strength again after 2 weeks pretty much flat on my back. Its quite scary going from 6 hourly moniteting to nothing at home, god bless heart foundation booklets, they are very informative. I will use the hearts to make a pillow cover, when I can persuade dh to bring my machine back down from the spare room after he had a tidying and cleaning session while I was away!
Love from Maria.

Spent the last few days in hospital with heart problems, and crohns kicked off. Undergoing lots of tests. Hope they find out soon what the problem is.. Still I'm in the warm, with no idea what the weather is doing. Love to all.

Don't panic Eileen, that looks like it maybe a nice tattoo. My daughter has one on each inside wrist, a compass, and a mountain range, quite delicate thank goodness, to go with her travel/adventurous personality.

sorry about the crick in the neck, theres some christmas bags, in an attempt to go "green" and chest of drawers, i decorated. interior design was a thing in my hobbies/ qualifications before I hit the sewing machine from my youthe. I amm Vowing not to buy any more fabric, as I really wont use what i have, am wondering where I can donate locally, noit sure the charity shops will appreciate it.

Hope you can make good use of my inexperienced effort, maybe trimming down for an odd corner somewhere. I am well aware that my skills fall short of many members.
Love Maria.
